Save this for later

The submission deadline for Request for Proposals (RFP) for the design of the Canadian Surface Combatant fleet has been set for 17 November, 2017.

Bidders for the programme were invited to submit drafts for preliminary review by June 2017, to help bidders determine whether their draft bids met the mandatory requirements set in the RFP. No scoring was conducted and no financial information was submitted.

With this review now complete and feedback provided to bidders, the RFP has been amended to help ensure bidders can demonstrate the full potential of their proposed solution to satisfy requirements while maximizing economic benefits to Canada. None of the Royal Canadian Navy's requirements have been changed through these amendments.

The Canadian Surface Combatant is the largest, most complex procurement undertaken by the Canadian government, and the ships being built will form the backbone of the Royal Canadian Navy.

Targeted completion for the procurement process is scheduled for 2018 and the start of ship construction remains scheduled for the early 2020s.
